The temperature should be in the low-to-mid 80s at first pitch with sunny skies and a light breeze. It sounds like a delightful night for a ballgame. Seriously, stop reading this and go to the ballgame.

Last night was less than fun. Here's hoping tonight they'll be able to bounce back. I know it looks bad, but they don't have to face Corbin at all in this series, and we probably won't know if Tony Cingrani's back until after then either. Right now, let's focus on this game.

They face Brandon McCarthy tonight, who despite having a decent season so far, has only made it out of the 6th inning in one of his last four starts. Leake is coming off of a rough start in Milwaukee, but shut down the Padres in his last home start.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
